I. Introduction:

The Non-Accident Bonus (NAB) is a new program being introduced by the company to incentivize employees to prioritize safety in the workplace. The objective of the program is to encourage employees to maintain a safe working environment and report any hazards or unsafe practices.

In order to support the NAB program, the company is also introducing a new “HSE ID Card” that will be mandatory for all employees to carry at work. The HSE ID Card will serve as both identification and a record of employee training, ensuring that employees are aware of safety protocols and best practices for their assigned tasks.

The purpose of this procedure is to provide a clear and comprehensive guideline for the implementation of the NAB program and the use of the HSE ID Card. The procedure will outline the eligibility criteria for the NAB, the issuance and usage of the HSE ID Card, the dos and don'ts, the reporting process for lost or damaged cards, and the consequences for non-compliance.

By following this procedure, the company hopes to achieve a safer and more efficient workplace for all employees.

 

II. Eligibility for NAB:

The NAB program is open to all employees in the company, but the amount of the bonus will vary based on the employee's assigned group classification. The groups are classified based on the risk level of the employee's position and tasks, with five groups in total. The groups are assigned by the Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) section.

To determine the bonus, the criteria for each group is based on a set of predetermined accident thresholds. These thresholds vary for each group and are set by the HSE section to reflect the risk level of each position and task.

The accident thresholds include the number of accidents and near-misses that occur in the workplace, and are used to track the safety performance of each group. If a group meets or exceeds the accident threshold, they will not be eligible for the NAB for that month.

It is important for employees to understand that the priority for participating in the NAB program is ensuring their own safety and the safety of their colleagues. Reporting any hazards or unsafe practices is essential for the success of the program and for achieving the desired outcome of a safer workplace for all employees.

 

III. HSE ID Card:

The HSE ID Card is a crucial tool for the implementation of the NAB program, as it will serve as both identification and a record of employee training. The card will be issued by the HSE section and will indicate the relevant HSE trainings that each employee has completed.

In case of new trainings or a change of position, the HSE ID Card will be re-issued upon return of the old card. This will ensure that the card is updated with the latest training records, and that the employee is fully trained and aware of safety protocols and best practices for their current position.

The HSE ID Card is mandatory for all employees to carry while on the job, and will be used as a verification tool by the HSE section, supervisors, HR, security and other staff to ensure that employees are trained and aware of safety protocols. The card is not meant to replace the traditional Company ID Card, but serves for HSE purposes only.

It is important for employees to understand the DOs and DON'Ts regarding the HSE ID Card, including carrying it at all times while on the job, updating it with the latest trainings and certifications, reporting a lost or damaged card immediately, and not lending or altering the card. Failure to carry the HSE ID Card while on the job will result in being turned away from work, missing out on payment, and forfeiture of the NAB for that month.

 

IV. Dos and Don'ts of the HSE ID Card

It is crucial that all employees understand the importance of carrying their HSE ID Card with them at all times while on the job. The HSE ID Card serves as a tool to verify an employee’s training and knowledge of safety protocols and best practices for their assigned task.

The following are the DOs and DON'Ts of the HSE ID Card:

DO:

• Carry your HSE ID Card with you at all times while on the job

• Make sure your HSE ID Card is updated with the latest trainings and certifications.

• If you misplace your HSE ID Card, you must immediately report to your supervisor who will request the HSE section for a replacement at no cost.

• Exhibit to your supervisors, HR, Security and HSE staff if and when requested.

DON'T:

• Lend your HSE ID card to anyone else.

• Alter or forge your HSE ID Card.

• Forget to carry your HSE ID Card while on the job.

It is important to note that failure to bring the HSE ID Card to work will result in being turned away from work, missing out on payment, and forfeiture of the NAB for that month. If the employee loses the card more than twice, they will renounce the NAB forever. Immediate reporting of lost or damaged cards will be mandatory through the employee's supervisor or timekeeper to ensure prompt replacement and avoid missing out on the NAB.

 

 

 

V. Injury Analysis and NAB Allocation

The injury analysis process is a crucial aspect of the NAB program. It is performed to properly allocate the cause of each injury to the specific group. This is to ensure that the NAB is given or denied to the right employees based on the accident thresholds for each group.

At the end of each month, the HSE section will analyze the causes of each injury that has occurred. Based on this analysis, the injury will be allocated to the specific group to which the employee belongs.

The NAB is different for each of the five groups categorized based on their risk level. The criteria for determining the bonus and the accident thresholds for each group are predetermined and will be communicated to the employees. The NAB amount will depend on the employee's group and the number of accidents that have occurred in that group.

The injury analysis and allocation of the NAB are essential components of the program and will be closely monitored to ensure the success of the NAB program. It is important to note that the NAB is a pilot project and the company reserves the right to withdraw it at any time.

 

VI. Reporting Lost or Damaged HSE ID Cards

Reporting lost or damaged HSE ID cards is an important aspect of the Non-Accident Bonus (NAB) program. The success of the NAB program heavily depends on the HSE ID Card as it serves as both identification and a record of employee training. Thus, it is important that employees report any lost or damaged cards as soon as possible.

The reporting process is straightforward and simple. Employees must immediately report to their supervisor or timekeeper if they misplace or damage their HSE ID Card. The supervisor or timekeeper will then make a request to the HSE section for a replacement card. The replacement of the HSE ID Card will be done at no cost to the employee.

It is imperative that employees follow the reporting process as soon as possible to avoid missing out on the NAB for that month. If the employee loses the card more than twice, they will forfeit the NAB forever. Thus, it is essential that employees take care of their HSE ID Cards and report any issues as soon as they occur.

The reporting of lost or damaged HSE ID Cards is crucial for the success of the NAB program. The role of the employee's supervisor or timekeeper is to ensure that the replacement process is carried out smoothly and promptly to avoid any inconvenience or loss of NAB for the employee.

VII. Withdrawal of NAB

The Non-Accident Bonus (NAB) program is a pilot project and the company reserves the right to withdraw it at any time. This means that the program is not guaranteed to continue and the company may choose to discontinue it based on its success and impact. Employees should understand that the NAB is not a permanent benefit and that the company has the right to make changes or discontinue the program.

It is important for employees to prioritize safety in the workplace and follow all safety protocols and best practices to ensure the success of the NAB program. The NAB serves as an incentive for employees to prioritize safety, but its continuation will be dependent on the success and impact of the program.

In the event that the company decides to withdraw the NAB program, all employees will be informed and the program will be discontinued from that point forward. The HSE ID Card will still be used to track employee training and safety protocols, but the bonus will no longer be offered to employees.

 

VIII. Conclusion

In conclusion, the Non-Accident Bonus (NAB) program and the HSE ID Card are designed to incentivize employees to prioritize safety in the workplace. The NAB program is based on predetermined accident thresholds and offers a reward for avoiding accidents. The HSE ID Card serves as a tool for identification, record of employee training, and verification of safety awareness.

It is important for employees to understand the Dos and Don'ts of the HSE ID Card and to carry it at all times while on the job. Loss of the HSE ID Card or failure to bring it to work can result in consequences such as being turned away from work and missing out on the NAB.

Injury analysis and NAB allocation are carried out on a monthly basis to properly allocate the injury to specific groups. Lost or damaged HSE ID Cards must be reported immediately through the employee's supervisor or timekeeper.

The NAB program is a pilot project and the company reserves the right to withdraw it at any time. The implementation procedure outlines the guidelines for the NAB program and the HSE ID Card and is designed to promote a safe working environment for all employees.

In conclusion, it is important for employees to follow the NAB implementation procedure and to prioritize safety in the workplace. This will ensure that the program is successful and that employees can reap the benefits of the NAB.
